    Default Census 2016

    So, I thought I'd start a thread about the census. (I know, I'm excited too! Friday night! Woohoo!)

    The census is on Tuesday night, it's compulsory, and you have to provide your full name, address, and lots of personal information.

    I'm concerned about the privacy aspects, but this can be a general chat thread about the census.

    Thoughts?

    Default Census 2016

    Hmmm, I do ancestry, so I find census information useful in tracking ancestor movements, address, employment and so on.

    I don't think my ancestors will be able to do that though, our information is being deleted in four years..

    They will have my Facebook though,.

    Truth be told if "they" really want to find information on you that's in the census a few cross checks and the information could be found

    I love the census.

    In my job I often need census data, so I realize how important it is.

    I have also done a bit of family history and the census information is always so interesting.

    I'm never quite sure why people are worried about the privacy aspects. If someone wanted to know that information about you, they wouldn't need to go the census to find out.

    Does it matter if you do it before the 9/8

    I was so excited I did it today! It was far less exciting than I was hoping 😞.

    I have already done the census online. Unless we are at the hospital (touch wood) all our family will be exactly where we are 95% of the time the rest of the year!

    Anyone else wondering if their site will crash when millions of people try and log in?

    Apparently you can log on any time and do it early. At least that's what a friend said, she did hers yesterday...

    They'd know the country of birth of my DS's donor? Don't think so ☺
